New Exhibit Gives Overview of Black Experience in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – A new exhibit at the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor is giving an overview of the black experience in the city.

Topics covered within the exhibit are the religious community, the business community, the steel industry, neighborhood development and politicians.

“It’s just to give people an idea of what a rich history it really is and maybe inspire other people to dig a little more deeply than we were able to,” says Donna DeBlasio, professor emerita of history at Youngstown State University.
